Opportunities to Support the College
A liberal arts degree from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh provides our graduates with endless possibilities. Our Letters and Science graduates leave our campus well prepared for living and contributing in a global society. They are equipped to be critical thinkers and problem solvers in their careers, in their communities and in their personal lives. Indeed, a liberal arts education cultivates an attitude of openness and flexibility and an excitement for lifelong learning.

College of Letters and Science Fund
This fund represents the area of greatest need for the College. Scholarships for students, professional development opportunities for faculty and bringing speakers to campus are just a few examples of how these funds are used.
Diversity and Global Learning Initiatives Fund
Contributions to this fund will help us to grow the number of courses and learning opportunities that address issues of diversity, social justice and global culture. Our European Odyssey study abroad program, the Black Howler Monkey Research trip to Belize and a host of student/faculty exchange programs are examples of opportunities made possible through donor generosity.
Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Fund
With this fund we are increasing the priceless opportunities for our students to engage in research collaborations with our faculty. The value of students’ active involvement in empirical observation, cutting-edge technologies and discovery simply cannot be understated. And the benefits for faculty and the wider community are significant as well. Gifts to this fund allow us to provide travel support for presenting research results at professional conferences and to offer stipends to upper level students who might otherwise need to work in jobs unrelated to their fields of study.
Service and Community-Based Learning
The College currently provides field-based experiential learning through community partnerships. Students apply their coursework through service opportunities, and at the same time, they acquire an understanding of the importance of good citizenship and of giving back to the community.
